High quality sedimentation tanks

Installation options

  • above ground 3m diameter
  • below ground to 6m diameter

Why choose a WPL Conical settlement tank:

  • Connection sizes and positions tailored to customer needs
  • Material constructed with corrosion-resistant Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP)
  • Tanks can also be made to withstand very strong alkalis or acidic PH levels

Custom design options can include:
